Port Barrington is a village located in Lake County, Illinois and McHenry County, Illinois. It was formerly known as Fox River Valley Gardens. Fox River Valley Gardens' village board voted 4-3 in September 2002 to change the community's long-winded name to Port Barrington. Supporters said they hoped the name change would boost property values by associating it with other nearby Barrington area communities. As of the 2000 census, the village had a total population of 788.
